    since nobody answered my other question i decided to change the topic name. I just want to know if anyone has run into trouble importing stuff. I am in the process of ordering and wanted to know if anyone has had trouble/legal trouble.

    It seems rather hit or miss really. It depends on how much is being shipped, how it's being shipped, where it's coming from, etc.. What kind of thing is You looking to get through?





    Peace,

    Thats not much at all I should be ok It is still hit or miss but envolpes come in by the 10s of thousands so the all can not be looked at as long as what it is packed in does not cause suspicion or attract a dog it should be oksmall amounts can make it. If opened and taken swim might just get a letter from customs stating they took swims product

    My other friend I had some cacti taken. all they got was a letter stating it could not be imported in the country. It seems for this they were more concerned with the live plant the what it was

    Well I may be too stoned to comment, but I reckon it all comes down to society's way of thinking.."If your face fits"!! [​IMG]

    I think what people are saying about it being confiscated and getting a letter from customs may be taking the situation a little bit lightly. Sure, this applies to the overseas pharmacies - that is what happens when they sieze, say, valium, but what you are asking about are most likely to be schedule 1 substances, and this is a whole nother league. Valium is a schedule 3 substance, (or is it schedule 2?) which means it is available in the US under perscription, although it can´t be imported, so they confiscate and send a letter, but schedule one´s are much more serious. If you were getting MDMA sent in the post, I think you could expect more than a threatening letter. I would err on the side of caution and say don´t do it, but really this would only happen if they found it and identified it, which they are not likely to be able to easily do with something like 2CT7.

    If somebody sends you mail with drugs in it, do only they get in trouble or do you get in trouble too if it's confiscated?</font>

    i don't think anyone would order anything that is already illegal but maybe i'm wrong on that one......."most likely to be schedule 1 substances" --&gt; but what if they aren't yet........say if ordering 4-ho-dipt by mail.???Can you get in trouble or have your packages seized for substances that aren't yet illegal but likely will be in the future and are being looked at currently?? Sorry if this question doesn't make much sense.......just looking for some further expanation.....and clarification

    With non-sceduled substances, the only way you can get in trouble is
    under the analog act (makes it illegal to consume drugs which are
    'close' to other drugs - fairly vague and fairly flexible).



    I doubt it's very possible that they will find your substance,
    chemically identify it, and then find a way to show that you were
    planning to take it. The sketch factor definitely goes up if you order
    larger quantities, or if the place you're buying it from calls it a
    drug or says it's meant for consumption.



    If anyone disagrees about the risk, please reply. I wonder about this myself.

    I think your own countries legal system plays a major part here.



    In the UK, where entrapment is illegal, they can't deliver it and bust
    you for it. They can't knowingly allow you to break the law.



    In the US I believe it is different, and they could knowingly deliver it to you and then bust you.

    I think you might be referring to a "controlled delivery", which they
    can do once the item has been identified. The DEA Microgram has a few
    references to this, but they involved a decent quantity of illicit
    substance.



    There has been a report of someone oredeing ketamine powder, and
    getting a customs letter along with a notice the item was analyzed
    subsequently seized. 2nd hand info, but you got to wonder for all the
    packaged chemicals without data sheets.

    If you order a controlled substance in the UK from overseas, then it gets discovered, you WILL end up in court. After ACS was raided as part of operation web-tryp, the DEA gave names and addresses of anyone in the UK who had ordered RC's from them to the Home Office's Drugs Intelligence Unit, and sometime around the start of December last year, everyone on the list of names got a visit from a regional crime squad unit - some of those people had only ordered 100-200mg of a chemical.

    Could you post more information about this? I ain't saying its
    not true but I thought thouse busts were just related to 2C-I, and the
    most of the people arrested got caught with a great deal of dealing
    equipment.

    Did they? I've communicated with a couple of them on a different drugs discussion board, and they were caught with piddling amounts (under 500mg). Some were caught with scales, but for dose measurement, not for dealing. It appears that ACS didn't keep records of who'd been shipped what, just their postal addresses, and that's what the NDIU acted on.





    In theory, some of those people might have just bought IAP and methylone (both not CD's) but they'll still have gotten a visit.
